Summer Destination Picks with Jo Watson of Finding You + #Giveaway

Jo Watson's Top 5 Summer Destinations 

Transkei, in South Africa- this is a stretch of South Africa that is wild and untouched. You could walk on the beach naked if you wanted and would probably not bump into another soul. We had a cottage down there on the beach and used to spend all our Christmas holiday there (which in South Africa, is summer) We have boiling hot Christmas holidays here in Africa- no snow in sight!

Mauritius- It’s a small island off Africa and a favorite holiday destination. I set “Almost a Bride” there. It’s tropical, with white sands, turquoise waters and long, pink umbrella filled cocktails. Most of the hotels there also have amazing kids clubs, which keep the children super busy all day so that they pass out at night- you can actually have a adult holiday there which is always a massive bonus.

Zanzibar- Also an island off Tanzania in Africa and one of my most favorite places. I’m hoping to set a book there too. Not only is it a tropical paradise but it’s also very culturally interesting and steeped in history. Fun fact; Freddy Mercury of Queen was born there in Stone Town and there’s a beachfront bar called Mercury’s named after him.

Image result for MaldivesMaldives- I’ve visited a lot of tropical islands, but this one is the epitome of tropical. It takes tropical-ness to a whole new level. I’m desperate to go back there and eat in the underwater restaurant where you can watch colorful fish swim past as you nibble on your starters. Those villas built on stilts in the water are also the ultimate in summer, holiday luxury.

Cape Town in South Africa- It’s consistently voted the most beautiful city in the world, and it really is. I love going there, but the throngs of tourists in summer can become a little overwhelming.

When you go to Greece to meet your family but end up making out with your smokin' hot tour guide #sorrynotsorry

Being adopted never made Jane Smith feel unloved, just unlike the rest of her family. As her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she is struck by an overwhelming longing to finally find her place in the world. So in a very un-Jane-like move, she books a last-minute ticket to Greece to find her birth father and the real Jane. All she knows about him is it that he was a tour guide named Dimitri. Armed with this knowledge and several surprise boxes of condoms from her mom (not embarrassing at all), Jane takes off.

Within minutes of landing she makes two important discoveries. First, everyone in Greece is named Dimitri, and second, fate might be playing a sick joke on her when a sexy tour guide called Dimitri comes to fetch her from the airport. He offers to help Jane with her search---if she'll go on an adventure with him. Stable Jane would never risk a steamy vacation romance. But real Jane might finally be ready to listen to her heart. Will Jane find her biological father, or will she end up finding something else entirely?
